A Florida man has been charged after allegedly punching a McDonald’s drive-thru worker because his food was taking too long.

Sherman Lee Brown, 34, of Leesburg, is claimed to have hurled abuse at the woman and then struck her in the face.

The incident happened at around 3.20am on July 30 at the fast food restaurant after he ‘became upset because his order was not being processed fast enough,’ a police report stated.

Brown was sitting in the passenger seat of a silver Ford Focus with his girlfriend, when he allegedly starting yelling at the employee.

An affidavit states he directed his anger at the woman, first yelling derogatory words including ‘cracker’ and then later shouted ‘hurry the f*** up.’

Brown then left the vehicle and was told by the employee that she would not serve him if he continued to yell and she asked him to leave the property.

Brown allegedly struck his female victim, a McDonald's (pictured) employee, after he became 'upset' that his food was taking too long.  He returned to the restaurant two days later, which led to his arrest at the nearby north 14th and Colfax intersection

Brown then allegedly told the victim he was ‘going to hit her’ and as she tried to close the drive-thru window he hit her with his left fist.

Her ‘glasses were thrown to the floor’ by the strike, later leaving her with ‘redness and swelling’ on her right cheek and eye, as well as a cut on her lip.

Brown then allegedly fled the scene with his girlfriend, who was described as having blue hair and gold teeth.

Surveillance footage of the incident, which has not currently been released by police, led to the identification of Brown.

He was later arrested at the north 14th street and Colfax intersection after he returned to the McDonald’s drive-thru on August 1.

The officer performed a traffic stop to confirm the identity of the suspect and brought Brown in as a suspect. 

The victim picked him out as her alleged attacker during a police photo line-up.

Brown has been charged with three felonies including burglary and battery, as well as one prior conviction of battery. 

He was released from jail after posting $29,000 bond according to Smoking Gun and is scheduled for an arraignment hearing on September 16.
